Keeping Mozzies At Bay The Natural Way!

There is nothing worse than insect pests and their itchy mosquito bites, as if the sound of a mozzie buzzing around your room isn’t annoying enough!


The carbon dioxide we exhale and our scent are mosquito attractants enticing the little critters to suck our blood, leaving behind those annoying itchy bites.

However, if, like me, you are not particularly partial to the idea of exposing yourself to harsh and harmful chemicals found in standard repellents, here are a few natural ways to keep mozzies away:

Mosquito Repellent for the Skin:
